Website Detail Page

written by Selman Hershfield and Chistopher Stanton
This web site presents illustrations of the Fermi surfaces of many of the elements in the periodic table. Interactive 3D illustrations, stereo-3D images, and standard jpeg images are available. Surfaces can be displayed by band so that the relationships between band structure and electronic properties of materials can be explored. The band structures for different solid phases are also available.
